Hello all, i went outside to try to fly my heli for the fifth time ever. I turned on my transmitter and plugged in the battery. I waited for the gyro to initialize then tried to give it some throttle. nothing happend. I tried the other controls and they worked fine. I tried the throttle again and the pitch of the blades was changing. I checked if it was in 3d mode and it wasnt. The blades were only pitching positive like normal but the motor wasnt spinning. I unpluged it and waited 5 minutes then plugged it back in and tried it again. It barely spun for half a second (more like a twitch) then nothing. has anyone had this happen to them? I think its the ESC or the Motor but im new to helis and want a better opinion. If you know or think you know the problem feel free to suggest anything. Please help.
Thanks

Can you turn the motor by hand?

Regardless, it is time to go brushless.
